Clearly structured source code will enable you to use the components in your own projects with ease.



Sample Project: JAMExplorer

JamExplorer is a project illustrating how to build an Explorer-like application using the visual shell controls of the ShellBrowser .NET Components.

JAM Explorer XP The well-known TreeView was placed on the left pane, while the contents of the current folder are displayed on the right pane. In the toolbar you will find some of the typical explorer buttons like delete, properties, and small/large icons. For every item the context menu will be displayed when the user right-clicks on it. All items can be renamed.

The only code written for this sample project were the handlers for the Buttons in the toolbar of the window (usually one line of code per button).
